I stopped by Wayne Edwards in Philadelphia over lunch today. For anyone that's interested there is one pair of EG black captoes (202 last) in size 8.5/9 D. Not sure what the model is and I think they were bals. They are marked down to $195. You could probably call them and have them shipped if you are interested. They are also selling Lobbs at $1100 - which I am guessing is much cheaper than most. The salesman indicated that Lobb was in the process of reducing...

I am hoping you meant "not a lot of money to some people" I would hate to think that there were a lot of people that could afford this kind of expenditure. I thought I read somehwhere that there are around 8,000 billionaires in the world. Assuming you need to have a net worth of $10 million or more to spend...

Or ill give it to a bum on the street tell his ass to get a job. And NO i did not get the job, infact i did not even get an interview. Well my initial plan was to march in there (its at a bank) and demand to see the head honcho and get an interview on the spot to get...

I would typically work untill about 17:30 - so by the time I returned to my apartment it was very difficult to find time to shop.

A lot of Bemer for Valextra shoes for $650-700 before the 30%. What's the deal with...
